Hi calling canada

Well for my advice or opion..coming to Canada only sounds good from India..I'm not saying its very bad here but yes initially you may find it difficult..


i know a call center company which pays 11-14 cnd $ /hr..

the best thing about that company is taht they have never fired an employee till date
they are an IT call center..same stuff 2-3 shifts in a day...

well since you are married you shud consider what your wife wil do here ..and i forgor if u have kids ?? sorry coz that also matters...

well i only beleive one thing is that if you beleive in something and are eager to achieve it u will sooner or later..


all the best and since you are from india let me tell you friend life is completly diff here the life style is so different and sometimes boring when you have nothing to do after working for 5 days..

hope this helps

... and I guess with Child Education being free till Grade 12 and Healthcare free ... it seems a nice option ...



It's a matter of time before we'll start paying for healthcare & probably education may follow next. Over the last few years the Govt. has slowly been cutting down the health services.

Just as an FYI, healthcare does not cover drugs anyways.

May be you could come here alone for a month and survey the job market firsthand before you apply. That way you be your own judge.

I think we are already paying extra for Health care. I am talking about the premium. It is probably based on your income and is included in your taxes.
The 2004 tax statement should say exactly how much you paid as Health Premium.

Check you statements.
There shuld be a separate statement specifying this.

Are you referring to the Notice of Assessment or some other Tax Statement.

Oh... could be the property Tax Statement. Remember seeing something for education.....

Well Ontario Health Tax doesn't come from Proeprty Tax.. its deducted from the pay check as a Federal Tax.. and if you filed your return.. you would get back the statement in the mail from CRA.. this will tell how much went to OHIP.

Its like we r being forced to buy medical insurance from the Province


:D

You can find the OHIP amount as step 7 on your form ON428 (which you can calculate on your own even if you have not filed your return). The amount typically ranges from $600 to $1,000 per year, however, in 2004 it will be only 50% of the annual amount since the deduction commenced as of July 1.

The deduction itself is made from your regular salary as part of the 'federal tax' deduction.

Think Positive
Friend,

You are right. Keep backup plans and start implemeting your ideas without any much delay.

As many people says, it is difficult to get a decent paid job in Canada ( I heard) but not that difficult. As long as you are prepared to takeup a beginning job while starting your Career in Canada, you will achieve good results very quickly.

I wish you good luck.

But when you work as a labourer in night shifts, standing, working as a packer/picker/fork lift operator then you realize that " Kaash Main India Hi Rehta ?
This is realty my dear friend.
